Don’t underestimate the importance of your Medium profile page.

While the majority of readers will find your posts through Medium’s algorithm, either through curation or via the recommended sections, some of those readers will jump to your profile page if they enjoy what they read.




The Shortform is dedicated to the quick read. If you are looking for some tiny nuggets of knowledge or some easy entertainment, you came to the right place. Specially designed for consuming content when you are short on time or energy.
